I love looking at the images of galaxies and nebulae from the Hubble space telescope. On a blue monotype inspired by those images of deep space, I superimposed symbols and imagery from both spirituality and science. I also added natural forms – the butterfly’s and eagle’s wings. The gold lines glow against the rich blues, pinks, and yellows, bringing to mind geometric drawings, as well as constellations, and even atomic particle trails. The golden arms and eyes of Buddha are integrated with the natural forms of the nebulae, symbolizing the interconnection of nature and spirituality. The transposition and overlapping of these images adds to that feeling of interconnection, which is the major theme in my work.
You might be surprised that such a blue monotype actually began with a multi-colored print. To achieve the sense of depth in this piece, I carefully layered various shades of blue over the underlying colors. This slow process was quite meditative, as I intuitively decided where to allow the base color to show through, and where to gradually build up more layers of blue.
So, what does ‘sacred geometry‘ mean? It simply means that forms and patterns in nature, when carefully examined, contain geometric patterns. There are mathematical patterns everywhere in nature, such as the Fibonacci sequence which is found in everything from sea shells to sunflowers. You may or may not find this interesting, but you can still enjoy the beautiful colors and shapes in this piece. I think it would bring a sense of nature’s peace and harmony into any home or office.
The original Sacred Geometry has been sold, but you can still buy beautiful high quality fine art prints of this piece at my ArtPal Gallery. They also offer canvas prints, mugs, and various types of framing options. Please take a moment to check out my gallery!
